Grade 2 Week 21

Notice the really long absence?

I hadn't been well on and off for a bit, and then I somehow hurt my back really badly at some point. It's been getting better slowly, but I still can't sit or stand for all that long.

ANYWAY, it's been so long that I can't really remember all that much more about what we did on a certain week and I will be just relying heavily on the pics that I have.

This was back in January, so we were still in the throes of winter. Yeah, right.  I mean, we had some flurries like twice this winter, both times where there was NO accumulation whatsoever.

You were very disappointed.

BUT we still kept to the Winter and Snow theme in our library books.

We learned a bit about landforms and watched a video on Volcanoes,

We also did some art with our chalk pastels, using the book Snowmen at Night as a teacher.

and did a fantastic craft project copied from a pin from Pinterest.
